The ubiquitous blue Ikea bags have been repurposed as moving boxes for every starter home in America. Now, one enterprising bride has turned them into a bathroom bridal hack that's far easier to put together than your Malm bed frame.
A Facebook post from djsweeby, as reported by HelloGiggles, has gone viral for the same reason all good ideas succeed—it solves a problem. Here, it's the all-too-common wedding day issue of ''just how exactly am I supposed to pee in this dress?" With this simple DIY, the pee problem is solved.
"Well, I got married a few weeks ago (in a mermaid wedding dress) and I was really worried about going to the bathroom and not being able to … handle myself," djsweeby writes. "Someone helping or watching me going to the bathroom on my wedding day? Not being able to have free hands to use the toilet paper? Or even worse[,] if my period decides to show? NO WAY!" Instead of relying on a friend, this bride decided to get crafty, fashioning a pee protector for her wedding dress out of an Ikea blue bag.
"My bridal bathroom helper hack costs about 0.80 euro and I did it the day before my wedding. It took only [three] minutes. What I like best is it’s almost free and allows me to make my life easier on my wedding day." All she did was cut out the bottom of the bag, which allows her to gather up her full skirt in one swift maneuver. No tulle in the toilet, thank you very much.
We won't call this hack dignified, but it clearly gets the job done. What more could you need on your wedding day?
